When I was young, someone called me a ‘pusharound’.
I never expressed contrary opinions, never argued. In reality, it wasn’t that I was afraid, or weak, I just never had strong ‘anti’ views.
If these friends wanted to go to the movies and those friends wanted to go to see a sporting event, I was easy. I liked both possibilities so which ever one was selected, I went without dislocations.
During my life I often found people would try to provoke arguments. They’d do something, and expect I’d respond. I never did.
It wasn’t that I didn’t realise it. It was just too trivial for me to devote a single brain cell.
I have encounter people who will do the most biased, unfair actions, designed to get me to do something.
I never do.
It is not that I’m a ‘pusharound’ it is that I don’t let others set my agenda.
